Hi from Cabo!

Eek! Michael and I are down here to celebrate our engagement…& honestly I could not be more excited. I mean, WTF’s not to love about Cabo? Ginger margaritas, a good book, sun ( with tons of SPF! ), & a lil romance.

Naturally on the flight over, I told Michael he had to turn on his ‘Romance Card’ ASAP…so we’ll see how that goes. Hopefully it’s on & ready. LOLZ.

You guys all know I love/love/love Cabo. If I never traveled anywhere other than Cabo, I’d seriously die happy. For some reason the second I step off the plane, I feel completely relaxed ( <<—- ha! So rare!! ). I’m always joking that they lace the air with gnarly Xanax.

For the past couple months I’ve been working a lot. Like, a lot, a lot. Think day & night ( late nights…think 2 am ) so a break from reality is welcomed. Entrepreneur life is no joke & I want to keep evolving with my business. So anyway, whenever I’m at my favorite destination, I always really, really try to put away the electronics & enjoy the serene surroundings in a teeny, weeny bikini..

Basically I can’t travel without a good, summer book ( currently reading: Jenny McCarthy’s Stirring the Pot: My Recipe For Getting What You Want Out of Life ), SPF, & hot bikini.
